Going to this year’s PAX East? Make sure to get your hands on the first publicly playable demo of
Monster Hunter Generations this side of the Pacific. For those not lucky enough to be in attendance however, a new trailer for the game has been released. This one highlights the title’s “Styles” mechanic, as well as “Hunter Arts.” Capcom champions these new features as allowing for “an even more visually striking and personalized playstyle than ever before.”

Here’s Capcom’s description of Styles:

Each hunting Style opens up different ways to tactically take on foes. Each Style also allows access to different Hunter Arts, indispensable combat skills and power-ups that can be unleashed with the tap of a button when charged, making it easy to execute these special moves.

  • Aerial Style – Adds a new jumping ability which allows players to attack from above, opening up more opportunities to mount a monster and potentially knock it down.
  • Guild Style – Classic gameplay for all 14 weapons and will feel familiar toMonster Hunter 4 Ultimate players.
  • Adept Style – Rewards players for learning enemy behaviors and performing a counterattack, giving players more tactical dodging and blocking options based on the current weapon type in use.
  • Striker Style – A versatile powerhouse that revolves around building up and unleashing incredibly advantageous Hunter Arts.

You can watch the Styles trailer above.
